How to Thread a Needle

Threading needles can be one of the most frustrating parts of sewing. Right!?

But I have found a couple really simple tricks that help when I am trying to thread a needle. They work EVERY Time

  • Needles have Front and Back - If the needle is being stubborn and not threading...turn the needle around and try to thread it from the other side. 
  • Wet the needle NOT just the thread - Out of habit I always stick thread quickly on my tongue to get it damp. But it makes all the difference when I do the same with my needle.   
  • Give the end of the thread a quick trim - If the thread has any kinks, fibers, or other small things on the end it will prevent it from easily going through the eye of the needle. Give that thread a quick trim, even if you trimmed it and wasn't successful in threading the needle once. 

Have you given these tricks a try? I bet ya that they work 1

 This works for sewing machine needles, yarn needles, quilting needles, embroidery needles, and every other needle imaginable to man kind.
